Inside Job

Inside Job is the first film to expose the shocking truth behind the 
economic crisis of 2008. The global financial meltdown, at a cost of 
over $20 trillion, resulted in millions of people losing their homes and 
jobs. Through extensive research and interviews with major financial 
insiders, politicians and journalists, /*INSIDE JOB*/ traces the rise of 
a rogue industry and unveils the corrosive relationships that have 
corrupted politics, regulation and academia.

On the surface, Inside Job is concerned with the events and the 
aftermath of the global financial crisis (GFC). But amidst the various 
interviews and cultural analysis, Charles Ferguson's insightful 
documentary addresses a more fundamental issue of social concern: the 
leniency (and double standards) surrounding acts of white-collar crime.

In his Oscar acceptance speech for Best Documentary, Ferguson began by 
reminding us that 3 years after our worst financial meltdown "/not a 
single financial executive has gone to jail./" Isn't it time to take action?

"/No drug, not even alcohol, causes the fundamental ills of society. If 
we're looking for the source of our troubles, we shouldn't test people 
for drugs, we should test them for stupidity, ignorance, greed and love 
of power/." ~PJ O'Rourke

"/Corporation, n., An ingenious device for obtaining profit without 
individual responsibility./" ~Ambrose Bierce 1842-1914

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
